Visit Bankside, the Soho of Elizabethan London, and experience today’s working theatre. Shakespeare’s Globe is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse designed in 1599 where many of Shakespeare’s plays were performed.

Groups can explore the exhibition, which is based under the Globe Theatre and explores the life of Shakespeare, the London where he lived, and the theatre for which he wrote.  Visit also includes an audio guide with 1 hour commentary, which is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin.  A family audio guide and British Sign Language guide are also available in English.



In association with publisher Random House, Ralph Heimans has painted a series of portraits of celebrated authors commissioned to rewrite a Shakespeare play in prose, as part of Shakespeare400. Each portrait examines the essential nature of the author, their work, and the play they have chosen to re-tell. The art of reinterpretation is a central theme underpinning the artist's portrayal of the authors and highlights the way in which Shakespeare continues to flourish across contemporary culture. Ralph Heimans is best known for his Diamond Jubilee portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, in the collection of Westminster Abbey. You can see his remarkable portraits of Margaret Atwood, Tracy Chevalier, Gillian Flynn, Howard Jacobson, Jo Nesbø and Anne Tyler in the Globe Exhibition until 2 May 2016.

Why not combine your visit to Shakespeare's Globe with other famous attractions and activities in London such as Household Cavalry Museum or Afternoon Tour Of London

Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition is the world's largest exhibition devoted to Shakespeare and the London in which he lived and worked. Housed beneath the reconstructed Globe Theatre on London's Bankside, the exhibition explores the remarkable story of the Globe, and brings Shakespeare's world to life using a range of interactive displays and live demonstrations.

Visitors to the exhibition can discover how shows were produced in the theatres of Shakespeare's time, from writing and rehearsals to music, dance and performance. There are opportunities to learn about the traditional crafts and techniques used during the process of rebuilding the Globe; to find out how special effects were produced in Shakespeare's time, to listen to recordings from some of the most memorable Shakespearean performances ever, or join the cast and add your own voice to a scene recorded by Globe actors; to create your own Shakespearean phrases in the word jungle; to watch a sword-fighting display and browse the costume collection, where you can learn about the extraordinary methods used in creating clothes 400 years ago.

A visit to the Exhibition includes a guided tour of the theatre where expert guide-storytellers provide fascinating half hour tours of the auditorium, taking visitors on a journey through time back to Elizabethan London as well as the reconstruction process of the 1980's-90's and how the wooden 'o' works today as an imaginative and experimental theatrical space.

An exhibition visit and theatre tour lasts about one and a half hours. Information sheets are available in English, large print, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Polish, Romanian, Chinese and Japanese.

NB: There is no access to the theatre during matinee performances. Visitors will be taken to the nearby archaeological site of the Rose Theatre, Bankside's first playhouse.



The great actor Edward Alleyn used part of his theatrical fortune to build a school in 1619, known today as Dulwich College. His gift also included personal effects, manuscripts and the diary owned by his father-in-law, Philip Henslowe. The diary provides unique insights into the running of the Rose Playhouse. Some of the Henslowe/Alleyn treasures are displayed by kind permission of the Master.


In September 2014 the Librarian in St-Omer stumbled across a book on the shelves which turned out to be a hitherto unknown copy of the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio. Before the discovery only 232 copies were known to have survived. The world can now boast a 233rd. The St-Omer Folio will be the centrepiece of a special exhibition which will place the 1623 volume in context of other important books and folios of the time.

As a big fan of Shakespeare, I enjoyed the visit to the famous Globe Theatre, the museum section devoted to Shakespeare's theater is very complete, and a tour of the theater itself was very lively, informative and made by a young enthusiastic guide.
